Cat swept out Essays at Troynovant:
mining the prismatic
veins of Knowledge;
listed by Title, A-B

These essays range in length from squibs to fairly substantial treatments; and in substance from humorous to polemical, from expository to analytical. The title or first paragraph should tell you what you're looking at, if not necessarily what you're in for.

Some essays are essentially reviews of books or films, perhaps more scholarly, but at any rate delving more extensively into detail or applying particular theoretical criteria. These are more likely to include significant plot spoilers than our regular reviews. If so, we assume you've read the books or seen the films discussed therein, but we do try to indicate that up front.

Give me the letter, sir.


I shall offend, either to detain or give it. The contents, as in part I understand them, are to blame.

I hope, for my brother's justification, he wrote this but as an essay or taste of my virtue.
